I wanted to share photos of a
~Garden to Table Birthday Party~
I hosted for my friend, Mary.
I had the party outside in our garden.
Rooster French Script plates were used from Williams Sonoma.
I picked flowers and herbs for the tablesetting.
Our friends Kim and David gave us the old barnwood,
Stan made a beautiful farm table from it.
Fresh rosemary and cute little ceramic pigs added a nice touch.
I found pretty pillows at Kirklands Home Decor
for the cottage bench.
Eucalyptus was used for the centerpiece.
I picked fresh flowers and herbs and used vintage mason jars.
I had cabbages inside old teapots and
an old antique iron and vintage "Rival" Clothes Wringer
displayed on the buffet.
A chalkboard in the kitchen read,
"Garden to Table"
A cupboard nook had more whimsical things for the Garden theme.
Watermelon, feta cheese and balsamic vinegar topped with fresh mint.
Crostini with brie, apples from the garden & honey drizzled on top,
Gruyere cheese with mustard seed and fig butter and
nuts and olives.
Arugula salad with beets, goat cheese and candied walnuts.
~Butternut Squash & Zucchini Lasagna~
Homemade ricotta cheese,
spinach, mushrooms, mozzarella and parmesan cheeses.
I used the KitchenAid Vegetable Sheet Cutter Attachment. I bought it at Sur La Table. It creates sheets of zucchini and vegetables to make healthy versions of your favorite dishes!
It was delicious!
The Birthday Cake was a
~Lemon Pound Cake with Candied Bees~
Lavender shortbread cookies & chocolate bark with sea salt & almonds.
Vintage rooster cordial glasses were used with Tuaca,
an Italian brandy.
For the craft, I collected flowers from the garden, dried & pressed them weeks before the party.
The girls loved being creative making pressed flower designs in glass frames I found at Michaels craft store. The second craft was decorating flameless LED vanilla scented candles I found at Walmart.
We used Mod Podge and glued the flowers onto the scented candles. They all turned out so pretty.
With the flowers,
I also made handmade thank you cards for the girls.
It was a fun
"Garden to Table Birthday Party"
for my friend, Mary!
